Personally, I am in the top three of all trainers in Canada, I have won many awards and have studied canine behaviour therapy and qualify as a Master Trainer, which has given me the opportunity to work with nearly 3,000 dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds, and more importantly, of all ages with any problem. As a dog trainer and behaviourist, I am experienced in all situations.
Let’s get started! We all want to have a fun and loving relationship to treasure with our puppy and/or adult canine friend. Do you need help with any of the following items?
My techniques are dog friendly.
There is no pain.
No Physical force.
No treats or clickers.
No shock collars, choke chains or pinch collars, nor do I carry a pocket full of treats.
I firmly believe that inspiring and supporting the owner is the best way to start off a new puppy or address your dog’s behaviour problems.
Who benefits? Everyone in the family! Your dog will benefit if all members can be actively involved in the customized session prepared by me. The techniques and methods that Bark Buster trainers have studied has been tried and tested and I cannot tell you the number of cases where the dog owner has commented on how much calmer their dog is after working with Bark Busters. Many dog owners are amazed at how much their dog can change in just one session.
Who will be happy? Everyone including your neighbours! Happy stress free dogs = happy stress free owners!
My love and respect for animals goes back to my formative years on the family Saskatchewan farm with all kinds of animals. My father was a breeder of German Shepherds and many of those dogs became police dogs. In my adult years, I have been fortunate to share my life with four Springer spaniels and now have my Standard Schnauzer, Ella. She is my loyal four legged companion.

I wasn't sure if the few issues we were having with our otherwise delightful 16 month old dog required professional help, but I am thrilled that I made the call and Rob came to work with us. We'd already been through two levels of obedience training so I feel I have a pretty good knowledge of how to have a good human/canine relationship, but by coming into our home, Rob was able to point out where, in our daily living, we were asking our dog to be the Pack Leader. He's professional and comes in with tons of information so it can seem somewhat daunting, but he has a comfortable teaching style that allows you to ask questions and get clarification along the way. By the end of the four hours, I felt empowered and confident and ready to move forward with the plan. I highly recommend Rob and Bark Busters if you are looking for help with your dog's behavior. My original call for assistance had felt as if it were all about fixing a problem, but the whole experience has actually become a great opportunity to improve the relationship we have with one of our dearest members of the family and that, to me, is priceless.

I just wanted to let you know how stoked I am after our session today. After you left, Libby and I had a siesta... and yes, she was on the floor. We had a great controlled walk following that for about 45 minutes. During that time we walked up onto the dyke at a spot where there are stairs and someone was walking their large muscular dog off leash on the dyke. The dog was at the top of the stairs that we were approaching and it was intimidating for me!. Libby was great, she was focused on me. I know my corrections should have been better, maybe quicker, and a little more fluid. but I get it.
I believe that sometimes people don't get enough positive reinforcement, so let me be one of the many I am sure to say THANK YOU for your insights, for sharing your knowledge, for changing our lives for the better.

Rob was absolutely wonderful - very knowledgeable and patient. He was able to convey the information in an easy-to-understand way that made it simple for us to learn. He was very patient during the staging and practicing parts and never made us feel bad if we didn't pick up on something right away. We really appreciate the follow up he has done, and I look forward to working with him in the future and recommending him and Bark Busters to our friends and family.
